Cognitive process resulting in choosing a course of action
Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Questions I ask myself when making decisions (or communicating), published by Catherine Low on January 23, 2023 on The Effective Altruism Forum. I work on CEA's Community Health and Special Projects Team. But these thoughts are my own (apart from question 6 which I inherited from Nicole Ross). I have an internal list of questions that I often go through when I'm making a decision (including when that decision is whether or what to communicate to others). I often bring these questions up when I'm trying to help others in the EA community make decisions, and some folks seem to find them helpful. I also sometimes see people making (what I believe to be) sub-optimal decisions and one or other of these questions may have helped things go better. Maybe you'll find them helpful too, and maybe you have your own questions you ask yourself (please share them in the comments!). I'm afraid they don't tell you how to make a decision (sorry - I haven't worked that bit out!), and they aren't exhaustive. They are just questions that seem to help when I am making decisions - either by nudging me to generate new options, or to become more aware of consequences. 1. “Is this really where the tradeoff bites?” Some decisions are framed as “A” or “B”. More decisions are framed as tradeoffs between amounts of A and amounts of B. Considering tradeoffs is very useful! But I often notice people assuming they're making a decision under difficult tradeoffs between values A and B, when I see A and B as being values on two quite different axes. There are often alternatives where we can get more A without sacrificing B or vice versa, or we can get more A AND more B (i.e. there are Pareto improvements we can make). The A and B I've been thinking most about recently are (caricatured) “clearly stating what you believe” and “being sensitive to others”. I think Richard Chappell's “Don't be an Edgelord” explains this particular A and B well. But I've noticed the general pattern a lot. 2. “What does my shoulder X think?” or. (higher cost) “what does X think?” You're not always going to please everyone. That's the way things are. But plenty of people seem to be surprised by the negative reaction they get from their decisions or words. This problem seems tractable. It would be nice if people could ask lots of people their opinion before making a decision, but that is costly (and choosing to ask is a decision in itself). So I've been trying to develop a range of people/groups that metaphorically pop up on my shoulder to help me think: Some individuals whose thinking I respect - some who I usually agree with, some who I regularly disagree with. Individuals or groups who would be affected by my decisions I'm sure my shoulder people OFTEN don't match the real person's thoughts. But I still find them helpful to create new perspectives. Some tips for developing or using shoulder people: If the stakes are high - don't rely on your shoulder person. Talk to the real people, the real stakeholders, people who have a different background or a different way of thinking to you. This especially goes if you've noticed you are frequently surprised by people's reactions to your actions or communications, or if you don't know the stakeholders well. You don't have to know the person/group to make a shoulder person - just read a bunch of what they've written. Some examples: I've often found insight from Julia Wise, so through reading her blog I created a shoulder Julia long before I started working with her. I've only met Habryka once or twice, but I often get new perspectives from reading their contributions on the Forum. This seems helpful, so I'd like to improve my shoulder Habryka. Before publishing something, read your writing several times with several different shoulder people in mind. Practice! One way to develop should...

In this episode, Rachael shares two super important pieces that have helped her build a multiple-six-figure brand & feel grounded in her integrity throughout the process. In this episode, Rachael gets into The importance of understanding that there is always more to learn and ways to grow. The beauty of working in different spaces and experiencing the unique tone and perspective of another coach or teacher. The beginner's mind in the world of social media and marketing, and being willing to be bad at something new in the pursuit of becoming great Applying a beginner's mind with everything in your life, avoiding the “I know it all” attitude and being open to receiving coaching and challenging your perspectives Consistently investing in the spaces and people that expand you. Her investments in herself The nuance of investing in yourself, that you don't “need” to invest, but what happens when you do follow your desires and invest Receiving support as someone who supports others, and the very real human emotions that come from being human How valuable support from others is in her being able to show up in the capacity that she does Taking a long-term view of investment, knowing that the return on investment won't necessarily happen overnight, but doing it anyways. Utilizing the resources that are available to you, and the weird distinction between student loans and credit cards or business loans The difference between debt and investing in yourself, your vision and your dreams Investing in a container with a teacher or coach is about so much more than just the information that will be provided, it's about who you become in the process Why investing in a mastermind is so f*cking powerful, and the amazing magick and community that occurs with all the other people in the space with you Expanding your vulnerability edges through masterminds, and showing up as yourself and for yourself in the edginess of being in community The difference between a 1-on-1 container and a Mastermind, and the exponential growth that's possible by rising alongside other leaders Making decisions that are in alignment and integrity with who you desire to be, not just what you see in front of you or who you see in front of you Having self-trust as a foundational aspect in making decisions about investing in yourself and your business, and trusting that the decisions you make are for your fulfillment and desires How feeling nervous to jump into what's unfamiliar is normal, but to not let that keep you back and to learn to expand your ability to tolerate that discomfort The relationship with mentorship, coaching, your business and money, and asking yourself what you need right now and who do you need to become to achieve your desires Thank you so much for being here!

We dive into our natural instincts with decision-making and why we need to step back and invite all three of our Centers of Intelligence into the process. We have a leading Center- The Head, The Heart, or the Gut. Our natural tendency is to take what we are used to and process things through the Center we are most familiar with and then move on. Today I invite you to explore your whole mind- bringing in all three- thinking, feeling, and instinct! Listen in! Make 2023 your year! Heck, make January your month!

Tuning into your body's wisdom Your body always knows what's true. Your higher self wants more from you than your ego can even imagine. Tuning into that wisdom when you begin to overthink or worry helps to make decisions from a place of alignment and integrity for you. In this episode of the Waves of Joy podcast, you'll learn about how you can access your body's wisdom and use that wisdom to make decisions that are the best for you.

She considers helping others discover ways and make decisions on how to live more productively her life's work and finds great joy in helping others improvement their performance and live better lives. Subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, Google, Spotify What problem do you solve? Teryn will help people get a better understanding of what productivity is and why we all want it. Teryn will give us advice on productivity. Show Notes: Being effective is one of the key components of being productive. The number 1 habit people need to embrace is the habit of beginning again. We are really hard on ourselves and beat ourselves down. We need to get up and begin again. Teryn's biggest metaphor: It's like laundry. We are never done with it. We can bemoan it but if we finally accept that the work is never done and get excited about it, we can accomplish more. You need to form a habit of saying “We get to do it.” vs. “We have to do it.” Human nature will always group activities into a have to, a should, or a supposed to. We continue down the road of labeling our activities like this. We can then start to feel resentment. The quicker we can find ownership in things we do and shift them to want to or get to, then we start to flow and we move to gratitude and momentum and satisfaction and fulfillment. Productive people are those that make that shift. 3 mindset skills that are essential to elevate and increase productivity The first is getting better at responding to an uncertainty or unpredictable surprise. Time management. Build a relationship with time. Tell yourself you have enough time to be who you want to be and to get the necessary things done. Begin again! 5 actions to reboot our productivity Develop book-end routines They are what you want them to be. They should be fun. Take time to develop them.

Welcome back to my podcast. On today's episode, I am joined by “Pro Troublemaker,” professional business coach, and president of Stefanie Krievins & Co., Stefanie Krievins. Since earning her trained coaching certification through Erickson's International in 2014, Stefanie has built a company and team of “troublemakers” that provide tools for others to help them define their organization's vision, work with trust and accountability, and communicate clearly to advocate for their own ideas. Here are some of the top transformational wins you will receive as an IT leader: How to Navigate Multiple Generations within the Workforce The Power of Seven Messages, Seven Channels, Seven Times Using the DISC Behavioral Method to Better Understand Your Team How to Build Self Awareness How to Run a Better and Effective Meeting How to Start Small and Build Stronger Leadership Skills Tune in and hear how you can transform your skills as a leader and create actions that leave an impact. As a CIO and Business IT Leader here are some wins you will get by listening: (1:05) Stefanie: “We get to work with ambitious, fast growing scaling companies when they have messy, middle, growing pains." (2:10) Bill: “What is happening that there's an opportunity for you and your organization to work for people to solve their particular problems?” (3:13) Stefanie: “I'm seeing a lot of leaders trying to use a consensus model of decision-making, which can be the fastest way to get nothing done.” (3:50) Stefanie: “For folks who want to run a high-performance team, hard times call for bold decisions.” (5:01) Stefanie: “We need to, as leaders, broaden our skillset when it comes to who makes the decision, how do they make it, who's involved so that our organization can continue to grow.” (5:42) Bill: “What's the genesis of consensus decision making?” (10:18) Stefanie: “There are new ways for you to be more transparent in your company in a way that makes sense for your business.” (10:47) Stefanie: “One of my goals is to help people understand those nuances that create friction every single day. Seven messages, seven channels, seven times.” (14:17) Stefanie: “Repetition is the magic of making your messages stick.” (14:28) Bill: “Is that sort of the empowerment you're trying to establish if you don't have the view of the CEO in mind but rather an individual leader within their company?” (15:46) Bill: “If you're coming in from a technical orientation versus an analytical, do you find that people have different things you have to coach them up on?” (16:17) Stefanie: “We are big fans of the DISC behavioral assessment.” (20:40) Bill: “You're essentially using this model to make sure that we know where we all are from our own style.” (21:46) Stefanie: “Just recognizing that you need other people to help you make decisions.” (22:18) Stefanie: “You need a high performing team that knows how to leverage all styles so they can make the best decisions possible.” (23:14) Bill: “It is one thing to make a fast decision, but it is another thing to make a fast implementation.” (25:09) Bill: “Is there a recommended meeting style or cadence that gives a framework for people?” (27:39) Bill: “How do you coach a team or an individual on how to hold people accountable?” (28:36) Stefanie: “We have to remember that the accountability is the other person's responsibility.” (32:08) Stefanie: “You have to define what kind of meeting it is so people understand how to best participate.” (37:54) Stefanie: “Spend the first 20% of every single workday being completely unavailable to anybody else to do your deepest, most important work.” (38:38) Stefanie: “Start with the work where you add the most value.” Resources: Stefanie Krievins' LinkedIn Stefanie Krievins & Co.

If you're anything like me, big decisions can feel SUPER STRESSFUL because you're terrified of making a mistake, terrified of the unknown, or terrified of what others might think. Let's be real, being caught in-between decisions is pure torture. But, underneath all of that fear & BS noise is a Knowing-- that is, your higher self does know what she wants. So, tune into this episode to hear my two cents on how to stop wavering back and forth, and make an empowered decision about your life that's aligned. Love you, girl!
In this episode, we talk about the often undervalued skill of making decisions.The reason why I talk about this in a career change setting is because your success in a new fulfilling, meaningful purpose-driven career or business will quite literally depend on your ability to make a decision regarding the new path you're about to commit to.These are the questions I'd like to invite you to journal on to master the decision-making skill:1. List all the facts (neutral circumstances) & the drama (your thoughts about circumstances) around this decision. List these separately.2. What am I afraid will happen if I say YES to this decision & commit to it? What are the consequences I'm afraid of? What will be the consequences of NOT making this decision? What will be the cost and risk of not committing to this?3. Feel the feelings that arise when you think about saying yes and saying no to this decision. What comes up when you feel the associated feelings in each scenario?4. Go to the worst-case scenario intentionally. What does my worst-case scenario look like? Get as specific as possible and then ask yourself how you would problem solve for each of those scenarios. Write out all the solutions & create backup plans for your backup plans.5. What would I do if I believed I can't make a wrong decision? How is me committing to this decision the BEST decision for my future?6. Before making a decision, ask yourself - am I regulated? Is my nervous system activated? Have I filled my inner resources (water, food, rest)? Am I calm and grounded?7. Tune into the wisdom of your body - what is the visceral response when you think about saying yes to this decision vs saying no to it?8. If you feel stuck between two hard decisions - ask yourself what is the third option here. What is a win-win scenario that I may be overlooking?9. Additional prompts:-Would I make this decision if the results I'm after were guaranteed? Where am I not believing results are guaranteed? Who do I think is responsible for creating results?-What is the opportunity cost of this decision? If I'm saying no to this opportunity, what am I saying yes to and vice versa?-What emotion am I trying to avoid by saying yes/no? -What would my future self say about this decision in 10/20 years and why? What would he/she do?-What decision will move me closer to who I want to be in this world?***Schedule a consultation call to take this work further:https://calendly.com/coachvilmausaite/45min***Instagram:@vilma.usaite***Not sure if you're ready to change careers yet?

How many of us know someone or maybe you're that someone..that blames other people for all of their problems. So and so made me lose my temper. My mother has me so stressed. My husband always brings home treats so I will never lose weight. The kids take up all my time so I can't go to the gym. Ive got news for you and for me too. As long as you don't have control of your temper, there will be someone that will set it off. As long as you don't have control of your eating, there will be food available to overeat, as long as you don't make working out a priority, there will be something that can get in the way. I work on this every single day. I try to take responsibility for every single outcome I have anymore. You know why? Because it is my responsibility. Im the only constant in my life and everything around me is changing. That means the only thing I can rely on 100% is myself. Me being stable and reliable to myself is a must and that cannot fluctuate with what's going on around me because if I wake up and say I hope I work out today, I hope nothing gets in the way of that, odds are that you won't. If you say “I hope I don't lose my temper today”, odds are you will. If you HOPE you eat healthy today, of course the odds are you wont. The definition of hope is the “desire for a certain thing to happen”. Having A desire means a strong feeling of wishing for something to happen. Wishing means to want something that cannot or probably will not happen. There it is. If you dig hard enough, you'll always come to the crux of the issue. When you hope for something to happen. It probably will not. We have to be more reliable to ourselves than we are being. Every single one of us. We are all navigating this new way of being in the world. 24 hour made to make us anxious news, so left alone our brain will have us hiding in the house afraid of our neighbors, food literally staring us in the face 24/7, so left without direction our brain will tell us we are always hungry. Doctors telling us the answer to everything is medication, it's not your fault just take this and you'll be better. You see we used to think the news keeps us informed, but now it just keeps us angry and terrified so they can make money. We used to think the government was looking out for us with the food pyramid, now we see if we eat that way, we are going to be sick and overweight. We used to think Doctors looked out for us, but now they really do seem to just be pushers of medication that keeps us dependent and makes us sicker. I have a friend who is healthy went to a cardiologist who literally said “changing your diet won't help, you have to stop lifting weights and take this medication for the rest of your life.” True story. Listen in for the rest of the episode! Love you guys! www.heididawson.com #decide #wishes #positivepodcasts
Well, it was super fun talking to Fred Fowler about experimenting. And I love that. He said anytime you try something new; you're experimenting. I believe this wholeheartedly. And I think one of the things I want to challenge you or you need to do is, if you are doing something new, think of it as an experiment number one or two.Think about how long you will do the experiment and how you will know whether you should keep doing it.So, how will you collect data? How will you measure what you're doing? So that you know whether or not it works.So, make sure you've got that measurement in place before you start so that you know whether or not you're trying.What you're doing for the first time is a good thing to do or not a good thing to do as you try it.Love the show?

The Government may be open to oil and gas exploration continuing in the next parliamentary term. Energy and Resources Minister Megan Woods said today that the Government was deferring making decisions on the future of onshore oil and gas exploration. Megan Woods also said that she isn't committing to any further block offers and will revisit this issue in the next parliamentary term, where there will be a better evidence base for future demand. Political editor Barry Soper says it's unlikely there will be much interest at this stage, as most companies would have shut down oil and gas exploration in New Zealand a long time ago.

If you're listening to this, then God has ordained you at this moment to listen and understand God's will. So today we also talk about why peace of heart is not a validation that God wants us to do something. Opportunity ≠ God's will. God's will is clear and can be known.

‘Big data' promised us an end to uncertainty, but we realise now that this is a myth. Uncertainty will always remain, and intuition can help us navigate it. That's the claim of Oded Netzer, one of the authors of Decisions Over Decimals: Striking the Balance Between Intuition and Information. On this week's episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Oded joins Ross G and Ross D to discuss: Why looking for a ‘perfect' answer isn't helpful How ‘quantitative intuition' (QI) can help us make decisions Techniques for identifying the data you do need to make decisions. You can find out more about Decisions Over Decimals, including where to buy a copy, at dodthebook.com/ During the discussion, Ross D referenced the website FiveThirtyEight.com. You can find it here: fivethirtyeight.com/ In ‘What I Learned This Week', Oded discussed Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History episode ‘My Little Hundred Million': pushkin.fm/podcasts/revisionist-history/my-little-hundred-million Ross D referenced FiveThirtyEight (again) to explore the technology within a football: fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-world-cups-new-high-tech-ball-will-change-soccer-forever/ Ross G encouraged all of you to follow him on Mastodon (the hottest new social network, pew-pew!).

The third category of clutter is anything unfinished and with 2022 coming to an end a good approach is to finish things up so we don't drag them into the new year. Science came to the conclusion that we remember uncompleted goals and projects way better than completed ones. We all know that feeling of how something unfinished is eating away at us, how it's a heavy weight that is pulling us down or can keep us stuck. If we have a lot of unfinished projects not finishing something is no longer just a possibility when we start something new, it becomes our identity. I share with you the tips and insights I had when reading Jon Acuff's book Finish and how it ties in with what I teach and help my clients with.

When coaches struggle with imposter syndrome and come to work with Jill, they almost always have difficulty making decisions - and this always stems from a lack of self-trust. Jill talks about how important it is to make decisions from a place of self-trust and how to actually begin doing that, because there are things that are holding you back from doing that in the first place and it's affecting your ability to show up as the best version of yourself. Jill also shares a tool she uses in her coaching with clients called The Decision Gauge, which helps coaches make empowered decisions and create boundaries around those decisions, so they can be the best business owners they can be.1:1 Coaching → www.jillianparekh.com/the-breakthrough-program-applicationBuy my book → www.jillianparekh.com/yns-bookInstagram → www.instagram.com/yourcoachjillFreebies → www.jillianparekh.com/freebies

Chicken nuggets or quesadillas? Blue shoes or red slippers? Apple juice or orange juice? These seem like fairly easy decisions for kids to make, right? After all, you're supposed to give them options, right? You're trying to give them some agency over their life and help them feel included. Except lately whenever you give your child a choice, it's a catastrophe. They melt down, or they procrastinate about what they want until the options aren't even available anymore; maybe they've just been refuse every single choice you give them until you're both frustrated. So, what gives? Why do children struggle with decision making, even if it's two, seemingly simple options to choose between? Well, that's exactly what we'll be chatting about in this episode-- why children have a hard time making decisions and what you can do to help. Spoiler alert: it has to do with skill building, because while it feels like making a decision is just a matter of picking which option you like more, there's actually a few different skill sets that are needed for this. And once we pinpoint what those missing skills are, then we can start figuring out solutions and stop the chaotic cycle of indecision and tantrums.

There's a pattern that is common in women who go through divorce when it comes to making decisions. Many women have learned to defer making decisions to someone outside of them believing that they know better or they have more authority or knowledge. This pattern keeps them small. They believe that their opinion isn't worthwhile or valid. The problem is when a divorce happens, this cycle of confusion around making decisions continues into life as a divorced woman. It becomes commonplace to agonize over making decisions because there is an underlying believe that they are not fully in charge of their own lives or will choose 'wrong' making life even more challenging. In this podcast I'm breaking down why making decisions is so challenging for women after divorce and why so many of us continue to choose to stay confused about what to do, instead of deciding. I'll teach you the two main components necessary to being able to make confident decisions as a divorced woman and how to overcome that fear that is holding you back.
